, thank you. jenna: "happening now," escalating violence in syria, we're getting reports that security forces have fired on a funeral procession killing two people, raising today's death toll to at least 28. all of these reports tough to verify, of course, from the outside looking in. leland vittert is live from jerusalem as he takes a look at what's happening in that part of the world. leland? >> reporter: hi, jenna. right now we're looking at a death toll that is now well over 5,000 since these protests began, and there's a feeling that if assad government falls, the new regime in syria would actually be the first western-friendly regime that could come out of the arab spring. that means russia and iran are certainly putting a lot of force behind keeping assad in power, and the stakes here are very high. from mass anti-government protests to running street battles, the fight for syria has entered a new chapter, pitting the well-equipped army against it own people. >> the army is pretty strong. we should not forget that bashar has the spear yorety of -- superiority of using the air fo
